Gilmore Girls fans, get excited: Sean Gunn (a.k.a. Kirk Gleason) is engaged! The actor shared the exciting news on Instagram on Monday, revealing that he proposed to his now-fiancée, actress Natasha Halevi, while on a trip to Kyoto, Japan.

"I asked @tashalitas to marry me and she said yes. Or to be more precise she said, 'a million times,'" Gunn captioned a photo of himself and his new bride-to-be kissing on the 'Gram. He also included a close-up shot of their hands together, showing off Halevi's new diamond engagement ring.

Halevi also couldn't contain her excitement about the nuptial news. "Wrote a long thing, but, instead. . . WE’RE ENGAGED YOU GUYS!" she captioned a precious photo on her own Instagram account.

Gunn and Halevi started dating in early 2017 and have been going strong ever since. In January, Gunn took to social media to gush about his girl. “2017 was tricky for the planet, but personally it was probably the best I’ve had, mostly because I met @tashalitas,” he wrote on Instagram. “Here’s to finding joy in 2018.”

He later called Halevi a “real-life wonder woman," and went on to say that "She’s smart and tough and funny and has great taste in cats.” Always a good sign.

Gunn, who is best known for his role in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, first gained his popularity playing Kirk Gleason on Gilmore Girls in the early 2000s. Earlier this year, the actor rejoined his Guardians cast members in Avengers: Infinity Wars, where he reprised his role voicing the character Rocket Raccoon. Here's hoping that his superhero costars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johnson, and Robert Downey Jr. all make that coveted guest list cut for Gunn's upcoming wedding!
